More digitally colored cartoons

More examples of cartoon line art that is colored digitally. The beauty of this technique is that an artist can do two or three versions of the same art and pick out the best one, a real advantage over traditional coloring methods. Simple flat colors, without any modeling or rendering seen to work best.






The above cartoon is from "Art Therapy", my book of cartoons about the fine art business.


This flat, simple method of adding color to line art would also work equally well on certain realistic drawings. Below is an ink brush drawing that I colored in a few minutes just to show you another example of this simple technique. The color art is quite crude and needs a bit of work, but it demonstrates just what can be accomplished with thus technique.
